    Hooked....

    Your brine sounds interesting....Just a couple of questions....What is that mongolian fire oil? and ..what are you using for the salt..to make the brine do it's osmosis thing? Other than that , it should be pretty tasty.

    mongolian fire oil? I was just going to ask that. Your brine sounds fairly close to mine except the mongolian fire oil - nad I also use canjun Spice and brown sugar instead of white sugar.
